A Corsage from Daisy


Daisy is so good at gifts. Her birthday and Christmas presents are prepared weeks in advance, wrapped beautifully, and stowed under her bed, where we are never allowed to look, ever.

She made me this corsage for my birthday. She took a vintage brooch, then pressed mint leaves until they were dry and quite crispy, and put it all together somehow.

I wore it all day on my birthday, up to visit Felix, out for Thai food, and through the evening. Yes, pieces of dried mint kept finding their way down my shirt. But oh, the Daisy love.

I wonder where she gets the talent for turning something thrifted into something pretty?

A belated happy birthday Anna.

First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY. April is a great month for having a birthday!

Second of all - sometimes those simple gifts overflowing with the love of the designer are the best.

What's a few bits of dried mint when you have all that Daisy love? Just precious.

Wow. So much thought for others in such a young person - wonderful!

it's so SWEET. I love it. I'm going to show it to my daughter, who adores picking mint from the backyard.

Love this...and it's really quite lovely...despite it's fragility.

Reminds me of a gift one of my boys made many, many years ago - a bracelet made by stringing small safety pins together. I wore it proudly - to church, even.

A very exquisite piece.
I just love the lines and color of it, don't you?
A creative daughter to a creative mother - I love the sweetness of that.
Happy birthday, Anna!

Aw..that's so sweet! Daisy has a future in her pinning endeavors. I remember the cape that she put the pin on a few years ago.
